Burnie Water Sculpture
Client: Burnie City Council, Burnie, Tasmania
The Tasmanian town of Burnie is a lively coastal town with a love of art, sun and surf. This was the inspiration for the design of an interactive water-play area adjacent to the Surf Club. The idea was simple in concept – create excitement and wonder by designing larger-than-life marine forms – but challenging in execution. The clean, crisp white forms show an underwater scene with two sea creatures and kelp strands interspersed with active triggered water jets. By night, the creatures communicate with each other with a colourful light show.
